Invisalign has been increasingly popular over the years. Catonsville Dental Care is a Platinum Invisalign provider meaning that we have successfully treated over 300 patients regarding Invisalign. So, why is it better to have straight teeth than crooked teeth? Does having straight teeth only matter based on aesthetics? No, that isn’t all that matters, and today we will talk about why.
Crooked Teeth Harbors More Bacteria
Crooked teeth harbor more bacteria, and they hold more plaque as well. The more plaque and bacteria a person has, the more it will lead to gum disease and cavities. In addition, if the bottom and top teeth are in malocclusion or abnormally aligned, it has a significant impact on wear, chipping, fracturing, and even recession.
Not Having a Straight Smile Can Affect Self-Esteem
The reality is that more people than not would love to have a white, straight smile. When you look good, you feel good—a beautiful, properly aligned smile aids in people feeling youthful and looking youthful. There are also psychological effects regarding smiles. People are more likely to trust people who have genuine and attractive smiles.
Is All Hope Lost When You Don’t Have a Straight Smile?
Hope isn’t lost if you don’t have a straight smile. Regardless of any flaws or imperfections, it would be best if you embraced your smile. However, if your less-than-perfect smile troubles how you see yourself or, worse, has an impact on your health, there is good news. We specialize in restorative dentistry if you need extensive dental work. However, if you merely want a straighter smile, Invisalign can help.
The Benefits of Invisalign
Invisalign is virtually pain-free because it doesn’t involve uncomfortable wire brackets. You also don’t have to stress about the appearance of traditional braces affecting how you look. The aligners are invisible. Therefore, people will hardly be able to tell that you are wearing them. Invisalign is for both teens and adults, and it takes less than two years to see results. Sometimes, results can take as little as six months! It’s best to allow us to make your custom-fit your aligner trays to ensure that you’re one step closer to having a beautiful and healthy smile that you can marvel at each day.
